Originally set to release in March with an accompanying Korean concert, Taemin’s 3rd full length Korean album titled “Never Gonna Dance Again” is finally being released! On August 4th, 2020 at 6pm KST, the “Prologue” first single “2 KIDS” was released digitally worldwide. “Act 1”, a full length 9 track album, was released on Sept. 7th featuring the title track “Criminal”. Now Taemin is returning with his follow up “Act 2″~! “Although Teacher Lee Sooman also gives me advice, I feel like I’m the producer of my solo album.” (cr. ixakaixa).

Taemin said during “2 Kids on the Block” Vlive to think of “2 KIDS” as the trailer that comes out before the movie. The teasers designed as movie posters were an idea came that from Taemin himself. The prologue (“2 Kids”) he had considered releasing last but the story is meant to be told in this order. Act 1 has a dramatic performance – something you haven’t seen before. Even though he’s an idol, this isn’t something you’d see in an idol world. Act 2 will end everything strongly, best of the best, game over. With this album, Taemin said that he was very hands on – choosing the MV director personally, meeting with the MV director, stylists, etc. He said in an interview with W Korea that he wanted this album to be a turning point in his career and use it as a way to give himself a rebirth – showing not just the façade of “Taemin” but also the sincere human side as well. With this release, he said he wants to create a deep, saturated color.

Of the songs on this album, 4 are already known to fans – “Heaven”, “Identity”, & “I Think It’s Love” were showcased at Taemin’s T1001101 concert in 2019 and “Exclusive” was a B-side track on Taemin’s “Famous” Japanese album. On the album, 3 songs Taemin had a hand in writing the lyrics for: “Heaven” & “Pansy” he co-wrote the lyrics and “Think of You” he wrote all of the lyrics! Interesting to note, some of the producers on the title track “IDEA” also worked on Cardi B’s 2020 hit song “WAP”.
